Loved this site - will return
Stayed at this site in April 2014. Booked an extra large tent pitch, it was huge and easily swallowed an 8 man tent, 2 cars and a picnic table with plenty of space to spare. The site is flat throughout and most of the tent pitches are secluded with trees / shrubs between each pitch, giving some privacy.
Toilet and shower block appears to be a recent build, is well maintained with underfloor heating and is spotlessly clean. Plenty of WC's and spacious shower cubicles. Showers are hot. There is also an indoor washing up station (4 sinks) and laundry with driers.
Staff are very welcoming and friendly. Without doubt the best camp site we have ever stayed at. We are already planning to return this year.
Nearest pub is the Fortescue arms, about 0.7 mile, gets great reviews but lacks charm. However a better option, for the more adventurous is to leave the park at the northern end, walk down the lane and take the footpath on your right, down a steep wooded glade, along a stream for a about a mile until you reach the village of Lee where you will find the Grampus Inn serving good food in great surroundings. (It's a long walk back uphill- not recommended in the dark). Also recommend the Ship Aground in Mortehoe.
Friendly and Naturally Spacious
We stayed here with a VW Campervan for a few days surf trip. The people that run the place are nice and friendly. We arrived late and were able to park and stay on the grounds before finding our pitch the next day. The shower rooms and toilet facilities were excellent - nice, roomy and warm showers. And leaving for the day and coming back was easy-going. Great times.
We have just returned from a weeks holiday at Warcombe Farm Camping and just wanted to say if you are looking for a campsite in North Devon then look no further. This campsite has fantastic facilities, clean, spacious shower blocks and has lots of lovely private little coves with which to pitch your tent.
The team on site are very helpful and welcoming. Even the local ducks come around for breakfast. Been new to camping this year, we have been so lucky to have found Warcombe Farm and have had a wonderful week in a beautiful location.
Wonderful Warcombe Farm !!!
We have not long come back from an extended 9 nights stay at Warcombe Farm. Originally chose due to all the great review and we were so please we chose this site. My 2 daughters ( 3 and *8 ) loved it so much.. they spent a day fishing in the lake and loved feeding the ducks that live on there every morning.. such a peaceful site no noise at all 11pm which was what we were looking for.. the on-site shop is very handy and also the family shower blocks were great for us all to get in..the site its so clean and spotless !!
The staff area very friendly and always had a smile and wave for us... on out first day Paul even gave myself and the kids a lift to the loos on his golf buggy !!
The site even has a bath!!
Pitches are great and vary depending on what you are after some a very large and secluded. We had pitch 186 in a close of bays almost... very large !
Woolacombe and the area is lovely we had great weather too !! Found lovely Lee bay worth a visit great rock pools and the tide goes out in the afternoon that time of year to reveal a lovely sandy beach.. would def 100 % go again !! you wont be disappointed Big Thanks to Warcombe Farm see you soon !!
I cannot recommend this site enough... not for you noisy campers though!!
Great site - will return
I recently stayed for 2 nights with my son and was very impressed. Shower block has a family bathroom - with a bath! Toilet blocks all warm and spotless. Pitch massive with privacy from trees/bushes. Staff all friendly and helpful. We will be back!
Great site, lovely people, fantastic facilities
We have just had a 5 night break and definitely wish we had longer. We were there over the bank holiday, so thought it would be very busy (queueing for the showers etc) but it was fantastic, the site was almost full but it definitely didn't feel crowded.
The facilities are the best I have seen on any camp site, the play area is great. The whole site is well maintained and the staff are so friendly and helpful.
We will definitely be going back again as soon as possible.
A gem of a site with the most helpful team!
I guess the problem is with a 5 star review of this wonderful site is that it will become more popular and then we won't be able to book!! That's just me being selfish. So, what about the site? Well, it's a lovely place, not overly big but generous in terms of pitch sizes for touring tents and vans. From the friendly welcome to then being guided to your pitch, everything here is just brilliant.
You have a reasonably well stocked shop for emergency essentials, plus good (and importantly) clean on-site showers and toilets in one block. The layout of the site is also very good, featuring a fishing lake in the middle.
The top end of the site features fairly open pitches, grass and hard standing, most serviced with water, waste and electricity whilst lower down on the site, you can choose a more private pitch secluded by trees and bushes. We elected to stay at the top as we wanted to be close to the play area so we could watch the kids having a good time whilst we sat out front keeping a watchful eye.
The staff always seemed happy to help, and to give them extra credit, when our car decided to break down we knew we would have to extend our stay unexpectedly by one night, the team were more than happy to sort us out and would even help to move us if they needed our pitch (as it may have been booked).
Access to the site is pretty good, the last remaining road up to the site is wide enough in most places for cars to get through, but some parts do narrow. The site is literally half a mile up this road, so no great problems there.
So are there downsides to this lovely site? Well, a few minor points.
The 5MPH speed limit was NOT observed by many irresponsible drivers and on a couple of occasions we needed to stop our 5 year old from crossing the track way when cars were coming as they seemed to pay no attention to the children playing in the park and the possibility one could run out (even though the main areas of the park are fenced, the zip wire is not). I think this could easily be rectified by adding speed humps.
Pitches at the top end of the site are much higher up and are obviously prone to the elements including the wind - be prepared to really tie down your tent or awning.
Local ciders - it would have been great to have the shop stock some local West Country ciders or ales. All that seemed to be on offer was Belgian cider and the usual European lagers!
Noise - although not a major problem, the noise does not really subside until at least 11pm, the park seems to be in use quite late (although there was a note to say this was not to be used past dusk) and I know the site wardens are out and about checking noise levels.
A swimming pool would be nice! (Note to the owners: if you are not making any money from the fishing pond there's an idea!!)
All the above points are very minor, and I cannot say enough good things about this site - Warcombe Farm is thoroughly recommended and we hope to return soon.
Warcombe Farm Camping Park:
We always take on board any suggestions offered to us by our campers. Our wardens at around 10.30pm walk the site and ensure that any noise is not excessive as we are aware that people are starting to settle down for the night (but let's not forget that people are on holiday). Our staff are constantly monitoring the speed of the cars around the site and we will consider speed bumps for the future. With regard to the play area, annually we are inspected by a independent play inspection company to ensure we comply with all the necessary requirements.
We look forward to seeing you again next year.
Perfection!! Again and Again
Third time here and again it was perfect. This campsite spoils you completely from the 5 star amenity blocks to the tranquil setting. We love that the site is quiet and is so peaceful in the evenings.
The staff again have been fab, always friendly and going above and beyond for everyone. There is lots do to in the surrounding areas, this time we did the tractor and trailer rice, a 12 mile bike ride, hubby fished on the lake for a couple if days and hubby and son went down to the trout farm near Barnstaple and caught us tea.
We also took a trip to Padstow to sample Rick Steins delights. I would highly recommend.
New additions this time were the different food wagons that came in. All were Fab, stone baked pizzas matched the standards in Italy, Paella from The Cauldron was as nice as what I've sampled in Barcelona and I have to say Miles fish and chips were nicer then Magpies in Whitby!
I'm sure I've missed so much out but I cannot stress how lovely and perfect this site is for couples and families. We love it!!
Thank you for making our holidays full of memories, we are planning next years visits already!
You would find it hard to find a better site
Just spent a week at this campsite and I have to say its the best site we have ever stayed at, the staff are very helpful and nothing is too much trouble the toilet and shower blocks are first class. I did find myself trying to find fault with the site but could find a thing wrong, I thought I found one small fault as I went to the toilet block and there was no soap in the dispenser... I thought aha got ya... Only to find a guy standing behind me waiting to fill it up. I will be going back to this site for sure, I can't recommend it enough.
A truly first class campsite
Had a fabulous week here 10-17th August. The campsite is lovely, we had a pitch by the lake and it felt very special. Sampled the pizzas - almost thought we were in Italy!! The wash facilities are 5* and the staff are great.
Enjoyed surfing at the local beaches, just quite sad to leave really. Hope to return soon!
What a Gem of a site
We chose this site from the internet and booked 1 week here just before the schools broke up. The site is lovely with excellent shower/ toilet blocks best we have experienced on a campsite, even had underfloor heating.
Our pitch overlooked the lake with its fishing(well stocked), ducks and resident flock of crows! Stunning sunsets over the lake. Our pitch was a premier pitch and had a BBQ stand for your own BBQ, Bike Stands, electric, water, and drainage and a picnic bench. It was level grassy with a tarmac chipped area for the car and very large. Our pitched was bar fenced on three sides. Walking round the site there are lots of pitches all tucked away for privacy with mature planting separating them.
The dog walk area, what can i say, not the usual 10m square. The walk is a very large field at the bottom of the site with fantastic views and many wild flowers and grasses, very natural. Our dog loved it.
Very good children's playground
All in all the site was excellent with friendly helpful staff. The site was immaculately maintained.
We will definitely return.
This is the best camp site we have been to. Facilities are excellent and always exceptionally clean. Staff are friendly and helpful. Nothing is to much trouble, would recommend to anyone.
Just spent the weekend and had a great time. Campsite was great, clean, spacious, friendly staff and a warm welcome from the staff in the onsite takeaway - great food too! Will definitely be returning.
Just like to say had a great weekend staff very friendly and helpful very clean site and great pitch sizes thanks.

We have just come back from our first visit and it really is a fantastic place. The layout of the site makes it different and special; the shower block is superb and the staff were so friendly. The nearby woodland walk is also a great feature for families and dog walkers alike. We definitely hope to visit again.
